|Full Thesis text|
It was envisioned to synthesize Gelsedine in 13 straightforward steps.
This project focused on the first key step, a tandem cyclopropanation-divinylcyclopropane rearrangement. The cyclization successfully provided the desired cycloheptene in 4 linear synthetic steps in 16% overall yield.
